AB  - OBJECTIVE: To examine factors associated with successful return to work among
      participants in a Social Security Organisation Return To Work programme. METHODS:
      Secondary data for 9,850 participants were obtained from the Social Security
      Organisation Return To Work database. The dependent variable was the Return To
      Work programme outcome, successful return to employment (same employer or
      different employer) or unsuccessful return. Logistic regression analysis with
      weighted sum contrasts was performed to assess the odds ratios with 95%
      confidence interval (95% CI) for successful return to employment across the
      various subgroups of participants. RESULTS: Overall, 65.5% of participants
      successfully returned to employment, either with their former employers or with
      new employers. Successful return to employment was found to be significantly
      higher than the overall proportion among those participants who had had commuting
      accidents, followed by those who had had workplace accidents. Successful return
      to employment was also associated with injuries of the upper and lower limbs,
      employers who were interested in hiring disabled workers, motivation to
      participate in the programme, an intervention period of 3 months or less, age 29 
      years or younger, and male participants. CONCLUSION: A structured
      multidisciplinary intervention programme provides a positive outcome in terms of 
      returning to work. Related factors have various impacts on successful return to
